  • COLUMN: Sports are less about...

    Final scores have never intrigued me. The element that stays on after scoreboards are turned off is the spread.
    Time spread, how the drama builds then plays out from pre-game pomp to first whistle to final buzzer and what happens after. How athletes and fans and media ... handle it.
